will be the united states of america. >> just getting a little update here. i'll tell you in a minute on florida, but welcome back to our special second hour of "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's see where we stand this hour and how the president night. the president put together a decisive victory last night. falling short of the votes he won in 2008 against john mccain. but he had 303. romney 206. florida's are still on the technically remain too close to call. miami-dade county is counting 20,000 absentee ballots they tell us. that's what they're counting right now. that's in miami-dade. that largest chunk of vote. if that breaks away the way they're going, it's impossible. i guess nothing's impossible. president obama is going to get that one too. it'll be 323 electoral votes when all is s if you will. i want to go to ohio because ohio was a big deal at the time. what was interesting here is where the margins were. it was all wasn't -- this was reduplicating the map. here's what the county map looksnow. i'll go to 2008. if anything, he did better in coal country as you
that will make up his firewall today. wisconsin, here in ohio and iowa. mitt romney just wrapped up a florida. now, he's headed to virginia and then back here to ohio. he'll end his day in new hampshire. polls show this race is extremely close. a dead heat nationally. very close in the battleground states. perhaps a very slight advantage for president obama. he seems to have a little bit of momentum going into the final day. well, democrats point to long lines for early voting as a sign of enthusiasm, but republicans say their crowds are bigger and the obama magic from 2008 has warn off. the president's closing argument, a fair shot for everyone and a chance to do even better. >> we've made real progress these past four years, but here's the thing, ohio. we know we've got more work to do. that's why we're here today. >> but mitt romney says four years under a president romney will deliver change. >> four years ago, let's look at the promises the president made. he promised to do so very much. but frankly, he fell so very short. you hope that president obama would live up to his promise to bri
florida, like virginia, you also see obama clinging to very, very within the margin of error slim leads in states like new hampshire. unfortunately, none of us are allowed to sleep through election day. we're all going to have to watch the polls. >> i will let you gaze into your crystal ball, whether you like to or not, and give me a one-word answer if there is a state that keeps us awake on election night, what will it be? the conventional wisdom is ohio. molly? >> well, just because of the time zone difference, it has to be colorado or nevada. >> what do you think, dana? >> i'm hoping for a recount in hawaii. i'm ready to go out there. >> i'm with you on that one. dana and molly, may we all be going west if there is a delay. thank you, both. >>> homeland security secretary janet napolitano is in the northeast today to assess hurricane damage. right now she's in connecticut and will be meeting with the governor. later on, she'll head here to new york city. the travel gridlock nationwide from sandy is finally starting to ease up a bit. laguardia airport opened this morning in new york.
. >> that's true. that is a big point right there. >> i think there's a sense that florida might be moving in romney's direction. structurally, that's always been the most problematic of the battleground states for obama. and if i were betting, i would bet romney carries florida. >> and we're hearing from the romney side that there's a bit of a head fake there. >> it may be. what a lot of strategists have told me is if you're going to make a play for a state, you need to do it at least three weeks before election day. so one week out, not even a full week, makes it tough. it might be too little too late for mitt romney where they are spending a lot of money at this last minute. but they've got a lot of money to spend. >> it's less a head fake than a hail mary ad. if they carpet bomb them with mitt romney and barack obama ads, negativity has been driven up in pennsylvania with bain ads. he's actually more popular in pennsylvania than he is in ohio and some of these other states that have been suggested in the obama ads. so it's a bit of a sneak attack. pennsylvania hasn't conrepublican in t
there. you saw a need for this after we saw very long lines for voting in ohio. some people in florida who waited seven hours. tell us how this would help. >> that's right, chris. we saw two weeks ago in our federal elections long lines, not just an hour or two but five, six, seven hours in virginia and colorado and wisconsin, in florida. several of the elections for congress weren't called until just the past few days. and when we're 12 years past that debacle of the 2000 election, i think it's critical that we put a competitive grant pool of money out there and challenge states to audit what went wrong and to propose the best changes they can make in registration, in early voting, in vote by mail, in voting access. and given the lessons learned from hurricane sandy to make sure that we are better prepared for conducting or delaying a federal election in the event of a natural disaster. the fast voting act of 2012, if adopted by congress, would put a modest amount of money out there as a challenge grant to encourage states to look seriously at what changes they need to make to ensure
will become part of florida blue, and geoff davis is forming his own public affairs firm. >>> and here is the must-see video of the day. yes, that's bo, the white house releasing these shots of the first dog checking out all the holiday decorations including a replica of him. you can watch the whole thing on our facebook page. >>> and if you read only one thing this morning, now, i haven't seen it, but apparently there's this reality show about a couple of guys in california who carve impressive sculptures out of trees using chain saws. so a writer at "the new york times" gets a crazy idea and thinks, i wonder if they can teach me to do that over skype. you have got to click on my must read just to see how it all turned out. it's up on our facebook page at facebook/janua facebook/jansi facebook/jansingco. it's amazing what soup can do. starts with arthritis pain and a choice. take tylenol or take aleve, the #1 recommended pain reliever by orthopedic doctors. just two aleve can keep pain away all day. back to the news. just two aleve can keep pain away all day. music is a universal lang
of florida have drawn a line against helping out in any way this law. so is this battle really more about the governors now? >> it is. and some of the governors may not want the money, but they are getting a 9 to 1 match from the federal government. so they are saying we're going to turn down this money from washington to help people in our state. when that starts to filter down into the political process of some of those states, the governors may begin to back off. >> do you think chris christie, who started to do this and kind of put all the mechanisms in place but said they wanted to see the outcome of the election, could they lead some of the reluctant governors? >> we'll see them moving for it. there are some bumps in the road. not all of this bill -- there's a lot of moving pieces. but the main elements, the medicaid expansion, for instance, will begin to proceed because the states have real cash crisis when it comes to medicaid. so huge result of the election. if the ryan plan had been enacted, which would have likely happened if romney had won, you would have seen 40% reductions i
florida. too close to call for either mitt romney or president obama right now. absentee ballots are still being counted in six counties. saturday, november 10th, is the deadline, the fourth day after a general election, to report the numbers. election officials blame the delay on a long ballot there, 11 constitutional amendment questions, and officials have promised to get it right the next time. >> and to those who got discouraged and left without voting, moving forward, i will do whatever it takes to ensure that this does not happen again in lee county. >> vice president joe biden will appear on next week's episode of "parks and recreation" on our sister network nbc. amy poehler's character leslie knope apparently loses control during their meeting, according to "entertainment weekly." >>> and a mother who gave birth in kenya decided to name her newborn twins barack obama and mitt romney. the first one was barack, and the second is baby mitt. they are both adorable. >>> if you read one thing, this is a breakthrough election for women. my must read is about a 9-year-old football player,

. >> there is preliminary 2016 polling out there. hillary clinton is the runaway favorite in florida, iowa and new hampshire. it shows chris christie in new hampshire, mike huckabee in iowa. marco rubio is going to iowa to campaign for governor branstad. are we looking at a drawn out republican primary? >> we had a drawn out system because of super pacs so all of these candidates will not only be able to raise a lot for their campaigns but a super pac will get them started. it's an open seat on both sides, this campaign being long, expensive through a lot of states. no longer about iowa, new hampshire and south carolina only. obviously that's where you get started and where the kickoff is. >> well, vice president biden, let's see, new york governor andrew cuomo, maryland's governor martin o'malley also being talked a lot about in these 2016 conversations. total game changer if hillary clinton sort of sticks to it and says i'm not running, right? >> i'm sorry, chris. say that again. >> a total game changer if hillary clinton decides definitely not to run. >> yeah, i think, as i said i think democrats are exc

, florida representative alan west, finally conceded to patrick murphy in when was one of the most probably high-profile congressional races in the country. are you suggesting, though, that the tea party is not much of a factor anymore? >> well, we rolled back the tea party tide. alan west, for example, ran proudly as a tea party icon. he said that the majority of democrats in congress were communists. that kind of extremism and that kind of rhetoric just doesn't fit. most districts in america. if you've got a fairly moderate congressional district that's interested in solutions, you reject that kind of extremism and that kind of rhetoric. and the more republicans clinging to that kind of tea party extremism, the less relevant they will be, the more likely it is they will lose their seats and we can get back to the business of moving america forward and solving problems, not creating more problems. >> new york congressman steve israel, good of you to take time on this day before thanksgiving. >> happy thanksgiving. >> president obama is back at the white house this morning after his histori
